For more information on the full changes made by the Employment Relations Relations Amendment Act 2018, click here. Our recruitment team can discuss and discuss any upcoming changes. A well-written employment contract helps the worker and employer know what is expected of them and what they are entitled to. This means that misunderstandings are less likely to arise, and if a problem arises, then workers and employers can go to the employment contract to clarify things. The employer and the worker sometimes agree that the job is for a fixed term (for example. B by six months) or until a specific event occurs (for example. B until the end of a given project) or until the work is completed (for example. B until the fruit is picked). The employer and the worker may accept a fixed-term job if: a worker may have an individual employment contract or, if he is unionized, he is covered by a collective agreement. It is advisable to include many other clauses in this document, as it forms the basis of the working relationship. If you would like help with the development of specific clauses for your business or a simple presentation document for you, please contact the Paul Diver Associates team.
But before you do so, consider whether you want to give the rules the permanence and legal weight of a clause in the agreement. It may be preferable to put in place non-contractual guidelines and procedures for workers to follow. If you do, you get the flexibility to change them when things change in the economy or industry instead of having to go through the process of changing the employment contract. Domestic violence is a legal right for all employees (after 6 months of service). In fact, you don`t need to include a particular clause in your contracts, because you can`t agree on that anyway. But it too can demonstrate your good faith and show how relevant your agreements are. We recommend having at least one directive. Similarly, if you have a problem with an employee, you need to deal with it quickly and fairly.
